Arousal in Performance Art

icehole_web_01

New issue of web magazine ICE HOLE – The Live Art Journal edited by me is online on 30 November. It tackles the rise of sex-positive culture in performance art, particularly participatory performances designed for sexual exploration and pleasure. Is it art, sexy art or just sex? And where’s the line between art, sex-positive activism and sex work?

Feature interviews of performance artist Julius Elo (FIN) and performance artist & sex worker Sadie Lune (DE/US). Also Slutartists (FIN), who caused a controversy in the 75th anniversary gala of the Degree Programme in Acting at the Theater Academy of the University of the Arts, are interviewed.

Videos by Pony Express (AU), Alisa Javits (FIN), Sadie Lune, Pilvi Porkola (FIN), Nora Rinne (FIN) Aada Sigurlina (FIN) & Tomasz Szrama (FIN/PL). Texts by ICE HOLE editorial staff; Tuomas Laitinen (FIN), Louna-Tuuli Luukka (FIN), Nora Rinne & Janne Saarakkala.
